Aktia Bank plc Stock Exchange Release 23/9/2016 at 1:30 pm
ACQUISITION OF MINORITY SHARES IN AKTIA REAL ESTATE MORTGAGE BANK BROUGHT FORWARD
Previously, Aktia Bank has given notification (8/10/2015) that the bank has entered into an agreement to purchase the minority shareholders' shares in the bank's subsidiary Aktia Real Estate Mortgage Bank plc. According to the agreement, the conveyance of shares was to take place at the beginning of 2017.
According to both the seller and the buyer, the measures planned at that time to be completed before the conveyance of shares have, however, already now been completed to a sufficient extent. And therefore the conveyance of shares has today been executed by the parties.
The transaction has no significant impact on Aktia's capital adequacy or on the result forecast for 2016.
